Indonesian television industry growing rapidly.


The technology of television industry has continued to advance now entering the era of smart TV, with digital technology of LED (Light Emitting Diode). Earlier the market was already brisk with Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and Plasma Display Panel (PDP), putting conventional technology of Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) more to the sideline in the market competition.

Early 2000's was a new era of television industry with the launch of television sets of the latest technology known as Plasma and LCD. The presence of the two variants of TV sets has boosted TV market as well as television industry in the country. In 2010 LED amd 3D LED television sets were launched.

In 2011 the country's TV production rose 7.1% to 6 million units from 5.6 million units in 2010. The increase in production followed the launch of new variants of LCD and LED by a number of producers, which offer big discounts especially toward the year-end. The new variants of LCD and LED flooding the market include Scarlet of LG, Aquos of Sharp, Vierra of Sony, etc.

Earlier, the domestic TV market was dominated by producers with Japanese principals such as Sharp, Toshiba, and Sony. However, in the past several years, LG and Samsung from South Korea grew fast overtaking the Japanese products in the market competition.

The strong demand for LCD in Indonesia, has prompted a number of producers to make Indonesia as a production base for their LCD products. In 2005, PT. LG Electronics Indonesia had an LCD production facility with a capacity of 50,000 units per month. Now the capacity has almost tripled.

Description of Products

Cathode Ray Tube (CRT)

CRT uses the technology of cathode ray tube with curving screen and heavier. CRT uses tubes to fire electrons that would scan the screen and make phosphor on the screen to shine and produce pictures.

Plasma Display

Plasma display is self emitting display. The screen of Plasma TV is made from individual pixel cell allowing electric pulse to stimulate natural gas--xenon and neon. The ray illuminates proportional balance between red, green and blue phosphor on each cell to turn out the color sequence.

Plasma which is gas based could be much wider in screen up to 64 inches. Even now the size could be as wide as 100 inches. However, there is deficiency of the Plasma technology as it could not be used for TV with small screen to suit small houses.

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

LCD is produced from a combination of small thin-film transistors (TFTs). With electric current, the Liquid inside will pass or hold white ray from backlight. LCD produces colors through a closing and opening process keeping the length of certain color spectrum of white color and passing the desired colors. The intensity of ray passed through liquid crystal matrix which make LCD TV produce pictures and rich with gradation of colors.

LCD does not use tube but Liquid Crystal, and it also does not need electrons to be fired but it needs only electric current. LCD, therefore, is thinner than CRT. Apart from being thin, TV LCD could produce better and clearer pictures and the effect on the eyes is less compared to CRT.

LCD Technology

LCD technology is a type of active matrix LCD which depends on Thin Film Transistors (TFT) in the form of transistor series and capacitor. With the aktif matrix technology LCD screen could display moving pictures.

LCD technology on TV is superior in radiation level being lower as it is not gas-based like plasma. The reflection level of LCD TV is low. When the TV is on , there is almost no reflection in the TV screen from other objects other than the TV display itself. In addition, LCD is more durable than plasma TV. For example, in normal use of being on for 8 hours per day, LCD of Sharp brand could be in good condition for 60,000 hours or 20 years.

LCD is not as big as plasma. However, with the advancing technology LCD TV could be produced with larger screen. There are a number of types of LCD technology such as Super Twisted Nematics (STN), Dual Scan Twisted Nematics (DSTN), Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal (FLC) and Surface Stabilized Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal.

LED Technology

Basically, LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology is an advancement of LCD technology. LED TV uses LED Backlight in place of fluorescent light, which is used in LCD TV. There are two types of LED TV found in the market--RGB LED with LED placed behind the screen panel or EDGE-LED with LED placed around the screen.

The most aggressive vendors in launching TV products with LED technology include Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, Toshiba, Sony and Panasonic.


LCD could be connected with PC, as gereally LCD has VGA connector. Therefore, LDC could function as television or as monitor. Some LCD products have DVI. DVI functions to receive digital video input from PC or other devices.

One of the features of liquid crystal is that it easily reacts on electric current. Liquid crystal is twisted and is called Twisted Nematics (TN).

There are two types of LCD--passive matrix and active matrix. The type of passive matrix uses simple electric lattices to supply tension to certain pixel in the screen. The lattices are made by using two layers called substrata. One substratum forms a column and the other forms a line.

The line and the column are connected with IC (Integrated Circuit) which controls when the voltage transmitted to certain column or line. The line and the column are cutting each other to produce pixels.

In order to light the pixels, IC transmits the voltage to certain column and a ground to activate part of certain line. The voltage will untwist the twisted liquid crystal in the pixel. See the following table.
